Nice resort, but the condo itself needs a lot of TLC.

  • 2 of 5

We really appreciated the resort and security, washer/dryer in the unit, the ice maker and a fully stocked kitchen. There were however quite a few concerns. There were 2 blades missing in the middle of the patio blinds. The bar in the master shower was falling out and the hot water knob in the spare bath was falling as well. The vents in the bathrooms were clogged with dust balls making them ineffective. The rugs were dingy and covered in hair, the living room chair was dingy and stained, the shower curtains had mildew, the toilets had mildew, and the layer of dirt and dust throughout the unit was disturbing. We have stayed in numerous rentals in various places and have not experienced this before. All these items and others were shared with the owners after we left. Sadly, we won't be returning.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo over Labor Day weekend. It was very clean and cozy. The second floor condo is close to elevator and ramp which made it easy to transport all of our beach items including a paddleboard. The condo is just as described in pictures and overview. The owners are great and responded to my questions quickly. We enjoyed the beach/pool during the day. In the evening our favorite restaurants were The Villagio, Cosmos, and Cobalt. The Wharf also has a great light show at night and the kids enjoyed the obstacle course there with Dippin Dots afterward. :-)

A Great 2 Weeks

  • 5 of 5

Welcomed by personnel at the guard gate with helpful information about our stay. Condo was everything pictured, described, and review comments. Second floor was not any issue. There were shopping carts, rolling carts, and busmen racks to aid moving in and out. Elevator was convenient along with a ramp to accommodate reaching it with the rolling equipment available. Enjoyed the view from the balcony of the beach and gulf. The beach was awesome and very private like atmosphere. Enjoyed walks of an hour plus in both directions on a number of occasions. Simply one of the most enjoyable stays we have had throughout the years. No hesitation in recommending to others.

Winter Snowbirds

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived Friday Feb. 27th. Check in at the main gate was a breeze. This unit was on the second floor, serviced by steps or an elevator about 30 steps from the unit. There were lots of carts and miscellaneous (shopping buggies) to handle all of our bags for a one month stay. The carts saved us lots of trips to and from our vehicle.

The unit was very comfortable, clean and very homey. The view from the balcony was exactly as depicted in the pictures. And the short walk to the beach was very welcomed. We spent a lot of time walking the beach, metal detecting, soaking up some suns rays and hiking on the near by trails.

The only inconvenience that we experienced was the A/C which stopped working 2 weeks into our stay. A quick email to the owners saw an immediate response and within 3 hours we had a service man at the door and the A/C was working again within 4 hours. The communication with the owner was excellent....unheard of these days! Overall, we definitely enjoyed our stay and would most definitely recommend this unit to our friends and others who are looking for a short or long term "getaway". Gulf Shores Beaches are the BEST!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property the second week of September. We found the condo very well maintained and very comfortable with plenty of room - it could easily accommodate 6. The owners were very easy to work with and were very prompt in answering all the questions we had. With the choice of several pools and the ocean just a short walk down the boardwalk, we were able to completely relax and enjoy the amenities and the sun. While on the beach we saw dolphins and stingrays swim by. In the courtyard we saw several rabbits. The one day it rained we took advantage of the outlet malls close by and the "all you can eat fried shrimp" at the Shrimp Basket - delicious! The other days we chose to stay at the property and cook our meals there - the kitchen was fully furnished and a grill in the courtyard provided all our needs. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. And we are already looking forward to our next visit!
